Let’s Begin…

Volunteer firefighter Mark Bezos tells a story of an act of heroism that didn't go quite as expected -- but that taught him a big lesson: Don't wait to be a hero.

Look through today's news and see if you can spot a hero. Take a moment to thank a hero. Find your own courage, commitment and compassion, and be a hero.
"One person can make a difference, and everyone should try." -John F Kennedy
